This monograph is presented by the authors as "an integrated view of the operative, endocrine and metabolic aspects of surgical care of carcinoma of the breast." The contents will be better appreciated if the reader has kept abreast of the voluminous literature on this subject.
The authors are to be complimented on the analysis of such a wealth of material and its presentation in such a compendious manner. Included are brief discussions on endocrine medication, endocrine surgery, and irradiation therapy. Programs of treatment including surgery are presented for individual patients representing eight clinical types of the disease.
